ANZAC Day Memorial Services

Mr Tony Pasin presents bottle of rum
This year once again we are holding our memorial services and march for ANZAC Day, next Monday.

Our committee members have been beavering away preparing all the minutia involved in organising such an important event in the RSL calendar and community. 

We are supported by various other community organisations and individuals including the Barossa Council and Federal Member for Barker, Mr Tony Pasin who every year gives us a large bottle of Beenleigh rum to share during our Gunfire Breakfast at the Hut. You can see him here handing this year's bottle to Treasurer Christina and Robin Henry.

It's a public holiday Monday and that may mean more or fewer people attend our two memorials on ANZAC Day. The first, held at the Tanunda Memorial Garden in Murray Street begins at 6:15 am.

At 10:15 am those marching assemble outside the Tanunda Post Office in Murray Street and march to the Soldiers' Memorial Hall (Barossa Gallery) in Basedow Road where a second service is held at 11:00 am.

Members and invited guests then meet at the Hut for lunch.

The next memorial event this year of course will be Remembrance Day on 11 November.

We hope to see you at one of our services on Monday.

Remembrance Day Appeal

Our volunteers will be outside Foodland Tanunda selling a wide range of memorabilia on Wednesday, 3 and Thursday, 4 November between 9 am and 5 pm.

This is part of our annual activity to raise funds for our veterans' support programs and the ongoing costs of running our sub-branch. Apart from special grants we receive for specific tied activities (see here), our club runs largely on donations from our generous sponsors and the Barossa public.

Numerous people simply drop off a donation and we have at least one collector who spends a large sum on new badges every year. Others buy one or two of our products sourced mainly from the Military Shop with whom we have an affiliation.

If you click on the Military Shop link here in the right column under Links, you'll not only find a rich harvest of militaria you can buy eg, jackets, medals, badges, caps, water bottles and much more, but you'll also ensure our club gets a small commission.

Do visit us on either of the two days and get yourself some of the newer memorabilia. We look forward to seeing you. 

PS: The umbrellas were popular last year as were the purple badges acknowledging the service that animals have provided during all wars.
